Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Recommendation

I would recommend this book to others becasue it is very adventureous and exciting. Many things happen that keep you on the edge of your seat. There are riddles you can solve (if you don't read ahead) for Harry and see if you were correct or not. Also, it doesn't take long for things to get interesting. However, I do not recommend this book to those who have not read the previous books in the Harry Potter series.

Self Written Summary

The Summer Holiday is dragging for soon-to-be fourth year Hogwarts (School of Witchcraft and Wizardry) student, Harry Potter. Harry just cannot wait. There are spells to be learned and lessons to be attended, unfortunately including Potions and Divintation. All Harry wants to do is go to the Quidditch World Cup with his friends and go back to Hogwarts, away from the Dursleys. He also wants to know more about the secret event happening at the school this year involving two other conflicting schools. Most of all, Harry just wants to be a normal 14 year old wizard. But unfortunately, Harry isn't normal. In fact, he is distinctive, or different. In his case, distinctive can be fatal.

Themes/Big Ideas

I think one great theme of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is with a little help from friends, you can win. Harry really wanted to try to find out all of the tournament clues, but he knew that he couldn't without some friends tagging along. Another great theme is don't be afraid and have courage. Harry wasn't super afraid to dive into the water (for a reason I cannot tell as it would be a spoiler) AND he wasn't afraid to STAY down there (for another reason I cannot tell as it would be another spoiler) so I would say that was great courage. That is why I think those were two great themes of this book.
